Hi! I am a big fan of poetry, so that will be my main focus here.

It's so hard to know exactly which way to go
When you don't have a compass guiding you
Go south, go north, go east, go west, and take it slow
No, it doesn't feel right, and I still don't know what to do

There are many ways to get to where I want to be
But there's only one way to get to where I am now
That is to be stronger than I was the day before, and that is what I try to do. That is how I want to be me
But how do I get to where I want to go? By pretending life is a cornfield, and away, I plow?

To get all I can while I can still get it?
But I want more as I assume we all do too
And I cannot obtain that with this poverty that's currently, us, hit
So, I guess I'll just stick to what's old,...

Forgetting the past is easier said than done
And then come some people who seem to be claiming "it's fun!"
But then, when you forget the past, you forget you
The essence of who you are will be where a lot of people don't want to go and don't want to touch
Touch it, even if it is a little too much
And then, you can easily claim it's not a fun thing to do
Because you've not let go of yourself by forgetting what makes you, you: your past
Even if it's hard to not let go, this pain won't last
Trust me on this; this, you can trust
I won't be like some who treat trust like pixie dust
Back to the matter at hand:
I want you to understand
That the scars of your past make you who you currently are
And i...

I need a connection of the mind
I need a connection that I can't seem to find
Someone who'll understand all of my quirks
Someone who'll get a tissue when there's... the works
Someone who'll cry with me when we're watching something sad
Someone who'll be there no matter if I'm mad
Someone who'll hug me and say "don't despair"
Someone who'll always be there
Someone who won't give up on even if I want them to
Someone who'll be my best friend and possibly more than that, in our point of views
Someone who'll love to give as much as love another human being and respect them as much as he can
Someone who'll be like me, but, yet, be like themselves too; be their own man
Someone who won't care if my g...

Failure is an option, but giving up is not
You may fail at certain things, but don't give up because you've failed
Just because the boat can't go, doesn't mean it won't try
It'll keep on failing until it sets sail

Don't give up and don't give in
The weather may change, but you can still sail on the ocean floor
You may think it's okay to give up because you've failed
But I say it's never okay to give up and never open opportunity's door

Someday I'll love Elisheva

It's hard loving the shell I am entombed in
There is no way I can ever win
Because, deep inside this shell I am trying to come out of, I am exploding
And, meanwhile, on the outside surface, I am eroding
There is no way I can ever truly be me in here
And that doesn't make me feel any less fear
I am slowly starting to lose the body I once had
I am not saying that, that is bad
I'm just saying that it just is and therein lies the conundrum
And I can't ever take it away, no matter if I feel like I am in the slums
So, loving the body I now have is hard as hell
And I'll eventually love it, no matter my cell
Cell being my body, if you can't tell
It currently isn't doing so...

You're almost there
Just swim a little more
And be careful too
Until you reach the shore

You're almost there
Just put one foot in front of the other
I know it's hard
But I'll hold you, my sister or brother

You're almost there
Just take a leap of faith
I know it won't be easy
But you'll surely make it back unscathed

You're almost there
Just jump a little bit higher
And I know you'll make it out just fine
Even in this worlds fire

You're almost there
Just dance the night away
And maybe, just maybe, you'll be better than fine
And you'll do these things anyway

I, the me that you see, matter
I, the me that I see, can shatter
I am not made of glass
And I am not as soft as grass
My heart can easily tear in two
Even though I sometimes wish that weren't true

My heart, on the other hand, is fragile
Both in reality and out,so my heart can't walk a mile
Take it or leave it; this is me
I can only change once I let myself be
So, whether I want this or not is not your concern
I just wanted you, this, to learn:

I am me, the way God intended me to be
Please don't take that away from me
It's not as if you can, but.... you can
Because I let you and I thought you're my woman
So, please try to understand my point of view
I can shatter too

I AM WHO I AM

Darkness is only there when there is no light to be seen
Light is only there when there is darkness
True, there can be light without darkness
But can there be darkness without light?

Depression is a cloud that no one can see
So people think it's imaginary
Or they are afraid of it, but there is no reason to be
And they need to learn of the possibility

The possibility of depression coming upon an innocent soul
The possibility of depression taking its toll
And making the person feel like they shouldn't complete their intended goal
The depression may seem like it's as light as a cloud, but it's as heavy as coal

So, I'd advise not to judge a book by its cover
And maybe, just maybe, you'll soon discover
That all that person feeling the depression needs is a hug of a friend, and not for the friend to hover
But for the friend, for just a few moments, to be like a lover

To love...

You might say "hello" with a smile
But what I see says something else; something I can't identify
It's not a real hello even if it's been a while
And it's not a real smile; I see the sadness go, quickly, by

You might say "it's nice to see you"
But I see it on your face
This is not true
Even the "warm" embrace

You might say "how are you?"
But you're not interested in hearing how I am at all
I see that everything you say isn't true
You're not interested in hearing anything from me and that makes me feel a mixture of feeling, but, mostly, it makes me feel small

Why ask me at all? I wonder, as you walk away
Having said nothing at all to you in regards to what you said
I just watch you as you w...

Fears

I fear death more than I fear life
But, sometimes, I fear life more than I fear death
It's all perspective and it's all in my perception of the world
I think it's high time I got rid of these fears

Fears are what control a part of you that you think you can't control
But it's easier if you think you CAN control it
You... I need to realize that I can do the aforementioned
And still feel like I am me: full of love

I'm afraid

I'm afraid of the light we see
Because darkness can hit at any minute
I'm afraid of getting older
Because, being young, is easier, or so I'm told constantly

I'm afraid of the life I live
Because, life, ends in the blink of an eye
I'm afraid of needing
Because I haven't got much to give

I'm afraid of the color black
Because, where's the color white?
I'm afraid of good
Because there's too much evil and, this world, good, lacks

I'm afraid of being unafraid
Brcause that's all I know
I'm afraid of being blind
Because, then, I can't see the world that was created and I'd need an aid

But, most of all, I'm afraid for humanity's sake
Because where would we be if we're not here?

When I start thinking, I realize something's terribly wrong
I look at my thought, and I realize who's the one that's stronger than strong
It isn't my thought that is stronger than me, as you might think
I'm the one that's stronger than the power of the thought, says me and every shrink
But the thought still pulls, like the power of the sea
I go along with it, because, at that moment, I feel less like I can let myself be
But then I remember, I am made of water too, so the thought can be like the sea, and I still can be stronger like a tree
So, it can pull me for as long as it wants to, but so can I; I am, after all, not the thought and the thought isn't me

I'm going to write a poem no one knows about
I'm going to write a poem that requires me to shout
So I'll shout from the rooftops what I want to say
To people who can't hear me otherwise, they'll hear me today
I'm shouting from the rooftops what no one has heard before
I'm shouting so hard that my throat is becoming sore
But I need to shout what I'm shouting; it needs to be heard
I'm shouting six words:
"LOVE IS ALL THE WORLD NEEDS"

Love is all the world needs right this very minute
To stop all the fights and the sinners
To stop all the hatred of the religion you stand by
To stop the sighs of sorrow and the people who think beginnings are only for beginners

Love is all the world needs right now
To stop all the people from being against one another
It isn't right or wrong; it just is
But I think the world needs to realize we're all made from the same stuff and that we're sisters and brothers

What if, instead of seeing your face in the mirror, you saw who you really are?
Will that scare you? Because it sure as heck will scare me!
Because I don't know what to expect when I look in the mirror. Will I see all of my scars?
Or will I see only what the mirror wants me to see?

Bullies, try to understand what I am about to say
You, and all the others like you, need to see that this is not okay
Treating someone you consider weak won't make you stronger any day
And hurting someone you consider inferior to you will hurt you in the end too
And not make you stronger in any sense. Although you do not see it now, it's still true
And what goes around, comes back around to you
So watch what you say and to whom it is said
And you might need to, carefully, here, tread
You don't want to hurt yourself while hurting others too, right? So, think it over in your thoughts and you'll see then if it belongs in, or outside, of your head

About something

See

Fighting a war no one knows about
Fighting a war everyone can see
Fighting
Fighting so much
That we have forgotten
What it feels like:
Peace
Peace is just an imaginary string
That we can't get ahold of
Because we're not trying
Hard enough
Enough is enough!
Stop with the fighting

Treat me like I am less then
Because I am so quiet
Treat me like I don't deserve a second glance in my direction
Possibly because I'm what's considered "fat" and I am not on a diet

Treat me with your jokes
Because I deserve it all
After all, I'm not like you folks
And I have more of a reason to stand tall

Treat me like garbage
And I might do the same
But, if you treat me like I am not in a cage,
I might become more tame

I am in a box to all of you
Because, to you, I deserve to be
But, when it comes to me, I think none of this is true
And you'll just have to accept that and let me be me

Treat me like you'd like to be treated
And I might smile
But, if you'd rather let me be seated
And follo...

We never judge a tree for being too thin
We never judge a tree for being too fat
We never judge a tree based on whether it brings enough fruit into the world
And we never judge a tree because of this or that

Although trees are trees and we are human beings, we still judge
We judge a human for being too thin
We judge a human for being too fat
We judge a human constantly and with this judging business, we can never win

So, I beg of you, take the time you have for judging a human to instead judge yourself
Or maybe even judge a tree
Because trees don't have feelings (or maybe they do)
And let each and every human being just be
